  1. Bob White Says:

    From what I can see here, all Polestar vehicles are made in China.

  2. Sean Wagner Says:

    I liked Joann’s analogy of EV sales being on a (slow) ride up the rollercoaster – but nearing the next phaaaase. Hell, Tesla’s selling well over 10’000 cars a month in China now.

    As for making battery cells, the focus is on one basic component, manufacturing of which is parforce totally automated. And innovation continues.

    However, with batteries remaining the most valuable part of a vehicle, cheaper metropolitan runabouts (including budding commercial offerings) might come to reside at the lower end of wide cost-and-range moat.

    There’s room for experimentation.
